How about a short version of your perspective?
Are there any evolutionists out there who have the balls to get in a one on one debate about how people got to North America???

I'm sure we can line you up with a 1 on 1 "Great Debate", but first we need more of message from you. So, what is the short version of how you think people got to North America?

Please reply as a reply to this message 2.

A "The flood caused the ice age" topic?
I'm not going to give this one the easy promotion - I'm going to grill you a bit first. Hopefully it will make for a better topic.

I've seen the creation side argue that the most recent ice age (there is also evidence of several older ice ages) was caused by "post flood climatic adjustment". Is that the core concept you wish to explore? A LOT of snow is required to build up to glacial ice thicknesses. Then most of that ice needs to be melted to get us back to the current situation. In all, it would seem to be a substantial time period where the Earth was a pretty chilly place.

If you wish to go the "The flood caused the ice age" route, please submit an opening message directly aimed at that theme. You can make such as a reply to this message 4.

Moderator guidelines
As I see it, this topic presumes that "the flood" happened - The question then is how did this flood come to cause/include the ice age. It is not the place for the usual why/how the flood happened/didn't happen debate.

I also presume that Peeta Mellark is going to operate in the young Earth creationist (YEC) time-frame (Peeta needs to make it clear if such is not the case). As such, the question is, how did it happen in such a restricted time frame?

I suspect that Coyote will wish to point out that the most recent ice age lasted longer than that YEC time-frame. If so, I think he needs to make the case of why it couldn't have happened in the YEC time-frame. Something other than citing his favorite old Earth radiometric age dates.

The YEC time-frame
I'm surprised you don't know this.

The YEC age of the universe is about 5000 years, although some YECs may stretch that to 10,000 years.

The flood model (as I recall, I may be wrong) is about 1 year in duration.

You don't have to take the YEC position, but most of the creationists around these parts do seem to be YECs.

Not anywhere near on-topic
Come on now. Your topic proposal was that the ice age was caused or otherwise tied into the Noahic flood.

How do you support that flood/ice age relationship?

ps: Please, use the little reply button at the bottom of Coyote's most recent message. You're (in concept) debating with him, not me.
